Madam,

In response to your request for Whistler's etchings & c. to be reproduced in a monograph[3] on the work of the artist, we beg to inform you that Mr. Whistler resides at 71 Cheyne Walk[4], Chelsea, London, S. W. to whom all inquiries should be addressed.

We have no authority whatever, to lend any of his works for reproduction without his consent.

We are madam,
Yours faithfully,

H Wunderlich & Co.

Notes:

1.  Hermann Wunderlich and Co
New York dealers, who must have sent this copy to JW.

2.  Nancy Regina Emily Bell
Nancy Regina Emily Bell (1844-1933), née Meugens, writer, wife of Arthur Bell [more].

3.  monograph
Bell, Nancy R. E., James McNeill Whistler, by Mrs Arthur Bell, London, 1904. JW, alarmed by the prospect of a popular biographer writing about him, refused to co-operate with Bell's book. His earlier draft reply to the proposal is at #00274; see also #00275.

4.  71 Cheyne Walk
The number is an error. JW actually lived at 74 Cheyne Walk.
